In Their Words: "Recording with this group of great musicians (and wonderful old friends) was an incredibly rich and indescribably fun experience! The music has its own personality and an element of humanity to it that I am very proud of. It is jazzy, but not really jazz: When I write, I explore the banjo within its confines as a modal instrument playing things that really make sense on the banjo. I then build out from there using other instruments to highlight, play counter melodies, create harmonic movement, and solo. So, rather than hearing banjo playing jazz, you are hearing wonderful musicians playing and improvising on instruments associated with jazz … but they have been tricked into playing banjo music! The album title, Frailing to Succeed, was named by a friend who came up with the title of my first recording, Clawhammer Your Way to the Top (1992)." — Daniel Koulack
